Critical Issues in Faculty Development.
Caldwell, Robert M.
Many universities and colleges have initiated faculty improvement programs which are directed at keeping the faculty intellectually rigorous, at encouraging the academic growth of individual professors, and at helping experienced teachers make adaptations to changes in student populations and institutional reorganization. This paper describes the forms that many of these improvement programs have taken and delineates some of the problems that have encountered. Among the types of programs currently being implemented are opportunities for instructional improvement, grants for teaching improvement, opportunities for interdepartmental mobility, and opportunities for developing pedagogical colleagueship. Some of the possibilities inovlved in each program are outlined. (TO)
